{     Hulger Phones     }    

http://www.crowndozen.com/main/archives/upload/2006/08/Hulger-thumb.jpg Met Hulgers yet? If not, take some time to get aquainted with them. In a very Duchamp-esque fashion, Hulgers are nothing less than the fusion of two contemporary utility icons: cell phone and rotary phone. The cell phone stays as it is, just deprived of it's original complex functionality, compactness and dullness. With a Hulger piece, your actual cell phone stays hidden away in your back pocket, however with a classic coiled telephone cord attaching it to your new Hulger handpiece. What is this Hulger handpiece? The old chunky rotary phone undergoes a mutation, loses it's main body so that the classic handpiece becomes the stylish and sexy attachment to your mobile (or of your notebook in case you need to use it as a perfectly functioning Skype phone). Not only the slickest cell phone accessory on the market, but also the sexiest design a cell phone could be seen with. Rejoice silver cell phone: you found a real hottie to go out with... http://www.crowndozen.com/main/archives/upload/2006/08/MrMeanerHulger-thumb.jpg Design-wise, three versions of these handsets are currently produced, all pieces of communicatory art: P*, an army field phone look-alike; Pip*, reminiscent of space age design, and the 40s inspired Penelope*, all in a variety of colours and in a hard shiny plastic. However you want to look at it (cool gadget or attractive computer compatible Skype extension), the Penelope*Phone is one of the most beautiful handsets being sold. Sexy, retro-looking lines matched with vintage inspired colours deliver a phone accessory that is undeniably pretty to look at. If you are up for attracting some attention or surrounding yourself with excellent design, then this may just have to enter your collection. Also, as if they were not already interesting enough, in accordance with the most current and lively trend in the design world, some customized limited editions have been produced as well and signed by art collective Monorex. Silly toys? In my opinion, they could have distributed non-working phone handles to make situationist art and I would have approved and applauded (and apparently I would not be the only one: super director Alfonso Cuaron has ordered no less than 100 Hulgers which will appear in his next movie). The fact that these phone handles work is the added bonus. No, it does not get more beautifully dadaist than this...
